April 23, 2010 – Texas Children’s Hospital
Mike and Julie Romano present Texas Children’s Cancer Center representatives Dr. Karen Rabin, pediatric oncologist; and Dr. ZoAnn Dreyer, director of the Cancer Center’s Long-term Survivor Clinic, with a gift of $30,000 from the JohnnyKicksCancer foundation. The donation will fund leukemia research at the hospital.
The JohnnyKicksCancer mission is to cure childhood leukemia through awareness and funding for cutting-edge research, and to empower and encourage patients, families and caregivers in their fight against childhood cancer. The foundation was created in memory of Mike and Julie’s son, Johnny, an avid skateboarder and patient of Texas Children’s Cancer Center. His official skateboard deck, which is sold in skate shops around the country and raises money for the foundation, will be famed and hung inside the Cancer Center.
